This is situated at Fort just under Ceylinco tower, This is right in front of Bank of Ceylon and Twin towers. If you at Galle face you can walk across to this place and Dutch hospital. Unless you go and search of this place you will miss it.
The last king of Ceylon King Wickramarajasinghe (Arrested at Kandy in 1815) before he is deported to India for his execution he was kept at this place (cell) you can see the actual last things there, worth a visit
There is no entry fee.

The prison cell is located by the road side in busy fort area in Colombo, in a land owned by a private entity. This is noticeble unless you happen to go there and accidently seethat and inquire what it is? More prominance should be given to a imprtant site like this

This is in Colombo Fort and is not very much noticed by the general public unless otherwise they are directed to the location. Its a very small cell where King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe, the last king of Sri Lanka was kept before he was taken away. Something good to see for knowledge.

Nothing special but a nice little find if you come across it - not necessarily worth hunting for though.
